Lynchburg, VA - Lynchburg City Schools is pleased to recognize E. C. Glass senior Samuel Fedeler as the recipient of the first $25,000 Award for Excellence in Science Scholarship. Samuel was recognized during Tuesday night's school board meeting.

Samuel attends the Central Virginia Governor's School for Science and Technology each morning, then returns to his base school of E. C. Glass, where he takes four Advanced Placement courses each afternoon.

He is interested in molecular physics and pursuing degrees in the fields of physics, chemistry, and computer science. He has applied to and is anxiously awaiting acceptance from universities such as MIT and Carnegie-Melon.

This scholarship is awarded by the family of Dr. Charles Pryor, who has donated $100,000 to LCS in support of one $25,000 scholarship per year for the next four years. It will be awarded to an LCS high school senior who has demonstrated a strength and interest in science.

Each senior applicant completed a written application packet that included a letter of interest, three letters of recommendation, and an official transcript. This year there were 19 very strong applicants.

The top five applicants then participated in an interview with a panel of administrators, science specialists, and community members.
